WASHINGTON, D. C, August 20. SpcII.) The announced purpose 0f 'Air. Brysn to take a malt a port a may I possible in this year campalgu i a severe disappointment to Chairman tirlgga anj the member of the Dem- scratie Congressional Camjtalgn (Jom mlttee, They had hoped Mr. Ilryan would make eechet in practically every doe district and were counting largely on hia popularity to etithuie the Democratic rank and lite. Mr. llryan'a policy haa the approval, however, of tho of bit friends who are looking Iteyond this year's contest to the larger stake of 1W)8. The Bryan Itoont hnn grown to it preeiit propor tion, with .Mr. Bryan on the other aide f the world. Thing have been pro greing very nicely, so nicely, indeed, that men like Bailey, of Texas, who have never ton friendly to the Ncbras knn, concede hi uominutlon two years hence. What good purpose U to be nerved, therefore, by Mr. liryan't return and participation in the campaign! If hia nomination he already assured, it Is not necessary for Mr. Bryan to do any. thing to push the boom along. And with him here nmkliig daily speeches, there would always be prewnt the possibility of mime untoward occurrence that would give the boom a aet-back. Bryan to Auatralia. And ao, there wa relief and satis faction when the word cnino that after a few week in America, Mr. Ilryan would again act anil for a long voyage to AiiHtralla, No arrangement of things ould have been better. After a long absence during which hia popularity ha had tremendous growth, Mr, Bryan returns, receives the plaudits of his devoted followers, makes graceful no knowledgmcnt, and sails away again giving to absence a second opportunity to make the Democratic heart grow fonder. Thus, both to Br. Ilryan and the Democracy, are spared the petty annoyance of daily contact, the criti cisms that come of dose scrutiny, and the depreciation that every man, no matter how great he is, must suffer when the people aro in constant hearing of his voice, It is a trite saying.but a true one, that familiarity1 breeds contempt. And by other aspirants for presidential hon ors, Mr. Aryan is envied ns a lucky nihil. Were the circumstances propltous more of them, no) doubt, would1 tgo abroad. Maybe Mr. Bryan's success will make it the fashion for presidential seeker to go a-travelling, in order that the peoplo may regard them through the telescope rather than the micro scope. WW Make Few Speeches, It is known of course, that Mr. Bryan will make a few speeches during his brief sojourn it home, and it is expected those speeches will be the Democratic slogans in this year? nmpaign, There is naturally keen "nnVty, therefore, as to what Issues I Mr; Bryan will make paramount. It Is the hope of most eastern Democrats that he will come out strong for revision of the tariff, and put the soft pedal on other policies for which the Nbiaskan Is known per sonally to stand, - Especially "anxlnua are the eastern 'conservative" as to what he may say on the subject of government owner ship of railroads. That Mr. Uryan la personally la favor of this policy I well known, but there Ik hop that hi may not pi ess it at this time, lie tweeit the attitude of Mr. Uryan on this question and the Democratic struggle in New York there is Intimate relation. If Mr. Bryan eome out strong for gov ernment ownership, thera will be noth ing logically left In New York but the nomination of Mr. Hearst. Should Mr. Bryan make tariff revision paramount, it would largely take the wind out of the Hearst sails, because tariff revUion has had no conspicuous place In the i learnt preachment. On the other hand, the remarkable growth of Mr. Hearst's gubanatorial boom, standing as be doe on a government ownership platform. may convince Mr. Bryan that the time is ripe to declare that policy as a car dinal Democratic doctrine. Radical Policy Wanted by Some. Itndical Democrats everywhere are are anxious that Mr. Bryan shall come out flat-footed for government owner ship and declare that he will atand or fall by that policy. They argue that such a course would be the best of poll tic, and their argument has a lot of sound logic back of it. The situation, as t appeal, to the radicals, is about at follows) In 1800 and again in KMX). Mr. Bryan was condemned for certain railroad preachments, Since then', a Republican president has taken up most of those radical preachments, adopted them aa hit own gospel, and forced them upon his party as good Republican. gnsper." The result f tremendous popu laifty for Mr. Roosevelt and public conviction that those policies hav better, certainly aa good, chance of be coming law with Mr. Itoosevelt at the helm as with Mr. Bryan, In other words, Itoosevelt has stolen Bryan'' thunder. The thing for Mr. Bryan to do, therefore, 1. to get some new thun der, and the most promising atmos phere for that commodity is government ownership of railraod. Mr. Roosevelt has not gone that far, and there is no hnnce that he will go that far within he next two years. And the radical believe that the people will remember that the things with which Mr. Bryan scared them in lfWfl and 11)00 are now generally ae cepted a sound policy and will not take fright when the "conservatives" shout "wolf" at government ownership.

CHICAGO, Aogust 20.-Further evi dence of peace negotiations between John Alexander , Dowie and Wilbur Glenn Voliva end his followers came out at two meetingt held in Zion City yes terday. It was Bowie's day at the tabernacle, but the First Apostle failed to appear, although It was announced from hour to hour that he would soon be there. Deacon A, Errington repre sented Dowie and declared that the de posed leader would give to the public in a few days a statement of bis side of the controversy. For the first time since the differences arose between Dowie and Voliva, the general overseer prayed for Dowie and asked the people to do the same. They were asked to pray that Dowie be guid ed aright in any step he was about to take. According to the Inter Ocean, an an agreement was reached yesterday bj which Dowie wilL for the remainder of his life retain the "First Apostle" of the Christian Catholic Church, while the temporal affairs of the community will be in the hand of Voliva and his sup porters. It wag finally agreed that Dowie should drop an attempts to dispute the ruling of the Federal Court in the con test case between himself and Voliva for the possession of the assets of Zion. Dowie also agreed to give his tenta tive support to Voliva in his campaign for the place of general overseer at the election ordered by the court for next month. In return for this Voliva and bis friends promised that so soon as the office of general overseer is vested in Voliva, the latter will proclaim him self with the teachings of Dowie and acknowledge hia supremacy in all mat ters pertaining to the church.

O., August 20. Indi gestion, from which he has suffered for three days, kept Mr. Rockefeller in doors at his Forest Hill home Sunday. The Euclid Avenue Baptist Church was crowded, many of those present being strangers led by the announcement that Mr. Rockefeller would be present. Dr. Cortland Myers of the Baptist taber nacle, Brooklyn, preached the sermon, during the course of which he defended Mr. Rockefeller from newspaper attacks.

NEED MORE MEN. PITTSBURG, August 20. Railroads entering Pittsburg are in sore straits for men to. man their trains. Some of them have raised the age limit estab lished for new employes some years ago, while others are abandoning it alto gether. The tremendous increase in freight business finds them all short handed, while at the same time the western roads are draining the eastern market of all available men to help move the phenomenal crops. Advertis raents are appearing in the local papers for men to fill positions as brakeraen and conductors, wages are being advanc ed and every effort made to increase the working forces before the heavy rush of Fall freight business causes a com plete blockade.
